百年多次危机袭击,Panasonic如何一一闯关?

全国大封锁又延长14天,相信很多老板都已预料到。
两周又两周的封城,对企业来说是一项无可奈何的重创。
您现在该做些什么补救行动呢?还是继续怨天尤人和坐以待毙?
这正是考验您企业如何面对逆境的时刻。

世界500强的日本企业Panasonic的创办人松下幸之助说过:“逆境能锻炼一个人,也能摧毁一个人。勇敢的人,把逆境当考验,始终保持热情,紧咬牙关,一步一个脚印,走得艰难却也坚实。懦弱的人,总在试图寻找捷径,或梦想不劳而获,唯独不敢直面困难。”

企业如何面对史无前例的重创?马上参与《六月围城之审时度势,突围而出》线上研讨会,让YYC总裁Datin Shin教您使用应对战略,来处理现金、贷款、成本及销售的急迫问题,以助企业度过难关。

松下幸之助在1918年创办Panasonic,这家如今市值268亿美元的企业在百年来都面临了不少危机。但每一次都勇敢地与灾难“握手”,每一次危机都能化解,且危机过后公司如同一棵长青树般,再次充满生机与活力。

危机1:1929年全球经济危机

当时日本市场一片萧条,Panasonic的产品销量锐减,库存激增,经营步入困境。其他企业都设法裁员,松下却决定生产减半,工时减半,不解雇任何一名员工,员工薪金还按全天上班时间照发。同时鼓励员工上半天工作,下半天可自愿选择出去帮助公司推销库存产品。这一举动让全体员工有了同舟共济之感,许多员工拼命去工作。短短两个月时间,堆积如山的库存产品就销售一空,工厂也恢复了正常生产。

危机2:1945年日本二战败北

1945 年日本战败后,美国对日本进行接管。由于美国的管控,银行贷款全面取消,Panasonic生产不能正常进行。当时,他们欠下高额债务,员工工资发不出来,导致许多人离职。艰难时刻,松下幸之助不气馁地说:不景气时,正好可以思考、反省、检讨、研究。这一思索,可能好计划、好主意就源源而出。
1951 年,随着美国对日的各项限制解除,日本经济开始复苏,Panasonic情况也逐渐好转,摆脱经营危机。松下幸之助表示,在狂风暴雨中,Panasonic终于重新站起来了,他呼吁要以「今天重新开业」的心态开展经营活动。

危机3:1973年全球石油危机爆发

依赖海外资源的日本企业无力应对,赤字如瘟疫般在日本企业蔓延。Panasonic也陷入严重的困境。危机时刻,松下幸之助冷静分析,沉着调整各种经营战略,模仿世界上最好的电子产品,并比别人做得更精、更好。他用仿造生产的产品成功地打入市场,挽救了濒临倒闭的工厂。松下幸之助再次度过了危机,并以更大的气魄进军美国市场。

“水库式经营”为变化储存资源

松下幸之助经营Panasonic,很重视“水库式经营”。这经营方式就是从一开始就保留一定富裕量的经营模式,如同把水蓄在水库里,根据需要慢慢放出一样,让设备留出一定的富裕,在需求发生变化的时候,合理调整设备的运转,以避免出现产品供不应求或供过于求的情况,保持经营的稳定。不仅是设备,资金、人才和产品库存都是同样的道理。

身为企业家,该向松下幸之助看齐重视“水库式经营“,这样在面对各种变化时,才能轻易找到资源,特别是要准备更多现金去应对。增加现金流就是每家企业必须一直执行的措施。企业到底要怎样做好提升现金流呢?

危机4:Panasonic 在2001年亏损4278亿日元

Panasonic多年来缺乏战略的盲目投资,并且出现了业务和资源重复,造成投资效率低下。他们所投入的液晶、等离子产业,投入了大量资金,但是获得的现金流回报却非常少。
同时,日元的升值,导致Panasonic的国际竞争力下降。因为业务的成熟化,中国和韩国产品的进口对它产生了极大的冲击力。

当时新任的总经理中村邦夫发起了以下改革措施。

a) 聚焦高毛利产品:
当时的电浆电视(Plasma TV)、DVD录影机、手机产品等都是Panasonic的“V商品“,即与其他业者相比是最具竞争力的产品。他们都把资源集中在这些产品上,夺回失去的市占率,以确保高收益。

b) 重组总公司的部门与管理层:
总公司废除了原有的部、课体制,使松下总公司战略本部的管理层由原有的6个减少到4个。将业务重复、零散的事业部整合为一个大的事业部,从而减少资源浪费,充分解决人员过剩、业务重复的现象。

经过一系列的组织重构,Panasonic重新设计了权、责、利分明的组织结构,迅速扭转以前的不利局面,并预期在2003年中转亏为盈。

老板,您也想让您的企业在逆境中转亏为盈吗?

Easy Financing for The Tresor @ Gravit8 through HouzKEY

Mitraland Group has collaborated with Maybank Islamic for the HouzKEY programme. This is in line with the developer’s Tresor MyHome campaign to make its latest project, The Tresor @ Gravit8, within easy reach for all walks of life. The process is as simple as submitting an online application on Maybank’s website and clicking the Apply Now button. It is a convenient platform for homebuyers to apply for financing in a hassle-free manner.

Considering that buying a home is a big financial decision, it is worth finding out more about HouzKEY financing. The campaign eases the burden of high down payments for homebuyers who may find this to be a challenge when purchasing a home. Therefore, this programme makes it ideal for first and second time homebuyers such as single individual, young starters and couples, and new families. With HouzKEY, buyers will enjoy 100% financing with no down payment required. They only need to pay a 3-month refundable security deposit upon execution of the HouzKEY Home Financing Agreement. 

The financial scheme is serviced only after the property is completed and is in vacant possession, allowing buyers to save up during the construction period. On top of that, the HouzKEY financial scheme offers lower monthly payments with the best rates so as to ease buyers’ cash flow and reduce their financial burdens. 

The Tresor @ Gravit8 is Mitraland Group’s latest development in Klang South, Selangor. It is strategically located near Johan Setia LRT Station. It can be easily accessed via the KESAS Highway and other major routes such as the South Klang Valley and Federal Highway. Just down the road, there are schools, medical centers, educational institutions and retail malls. Orbix International School has also opened its first Klang Valley campus at the retail component of Gravit8 called Pier8. 

The Tresor is the third phase within Gravit8 and this freehold residential tower takes up 2.75 acres. It is due for completion in 2025 and has a gross development value of RM240 million. Designed with the classic Mediterranean Santorini theme in mind, The Tresor offers the best view among all the residential towers at Gravit8, as it directly fronts the 8-acre iconic Gravit8 Lakepark.

The Lakepark forms the centrepiece of the Gravit8 lakefront community which consists of residential towers, Pier8 Retail Mall, retail shops, while future developments will consist of offices, and a hotel. These components are integrated seamlessly to create a self-sufficient community for residents, occupants and visitors to have a comfortable transition from one zone to the next. The first floor of The Tresor is linked to Pier8 Retail Mall, giving homeowners convenience at their doorstep.

The units range from 952 sq ft to 1,206 sqft in size, comprising 3 beds & 2 baths to 3+1 beds & 2 baths units and are priced from RM516,800. All the units come with 2 parking spaces, except the largest type which allots 3 parking spaces. 

Special units at The Tresor called Parkhomes allow residents the luxury of parking their vehicles directly in front of their units, offering homeowners the best of both worlds – exclusive condo facilities with added security while enjoying the easy convenience of a landed property.  At Level 8, residents get to revel in a 1.3-acre facility deck that houses 24 facilities while the design concept is inspired by Santorini’s natural beauty, created to give homeowners the holiday at home feel all year round.

Mitraland’s CEO, Dato Andy Khoo emphasises that the company strives to stay true to their “Crafting Lifestyles, Creating Value” core values. 

“This collaboration between Maybank Islamic and Mitraland is a strategic move to encourage property ownership and help address the growing issue of homeownership affordability in Malaysia. We understand the dilemma faced by home buyers in these challenging times and economic uncertainties. HouzKEY is an ideal homeownership solution that helps home buyers to own their dream home now. We further welcome the announcement of the extended Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) to 31 December 2021 to stimulate the property market and help buyers in homeownership,” said Sally Lye, Managing Director of Maybank’s Real Estate Ventures. 

“At Mitraland, quality is never compromised and each component is expertly crafted and delivered under continuous supervision for quality assurance. We try to conceptualise projects that interlace character with functionality and quality with ingenuity; and this allows us to maintain our brand position in the marketplace.”

Mitraland Group is one of Malaysia’s leading boutique developers. It has won a string of accolades. Among the more recent are the ASEAN Property Award Malaysia in 2019, Gold World – FIABCI World Prix D’Excellence Awards 2018 for the residential (low rise) category and Malaysia Property Award 2017 for the same category.

Wan Saiful anggap Najib ‘sembunyikan’ Rosmah untuk alih isu lain #ms

Wan Saiful tegur Najib tekun 'troll' individu dalam PN
Gambar: Sinar Harian

Oleh Wan Saiful Wan Jan

Saya lihat Dato Sri Najib Razak begitu tekun troll beberapa orang dalam kerajaan Perikatan Nasional, iaitu kerajaan dia sendiri. Perbuatan troll kerajaan sendiri ini sebenarnya pelik, tetapi dalam strategi “diversion” ia memang perlu dibuat.

Sekarang Najib tak perlu ulang alik ke mahkamah sebab mahkamah tutup semasa PKP ke? Bolehlah jadi Ketua Perungut Kebangsaan sepenuh masa.
Strategi utama Najib ialah “divert” perhatian kepada isu lain supaya orang lupa apa yang telah dia buat. Banyakkan rungutan mengenai kerajaan sendiri supaya perhatian rakyat dapat “divert” daripada berapa billion yang telah dirompak. Tunjukkan diri sebagai hero UMNO supaya orang UMNO sendiri lupa bahawa UMNO kalah PRU14 sebab orang marah Najib.

Yang menariknya, setiap kali saya komen mengenai dia, maka beribu cybertroopers datang serang posting saya. Ramai sungguh team Najib Razak ni ya. Kalau isteri tersayang Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor dikatakan bayar RM100,000 sebulan untuk cybertroopers, agak-agak Najib bayar berapa juta sebulan ya?

Saya hairan juga mana hilangnya Rosmah Mansor. “Can I advise you something” dibuat di rumah saja. Bagus juga Rosmah ni. Patuh SOP.
Ini pun strategi “diversion”. Bila Najib sembunyikan Rosmah, orang dah tak nampak Rosmah. Bila orang tak nampak, maka perlahan-lahan dia mahu media dan rakyat lupa mengenai kemewahan Rosmah. Maka perhatian akan “divert” ke isu lain.

Nampak macam ramai juga ahli team cybertroopers Najib ni ya. Atau adakah dengan Jajaran Baru yang dia sedang kempenkan, Najib sudah bergabung juga dengan Red Bean Army (RBA)? Saya nampak sejak Najib bawa idea Jajaran Baru ini, tahap aktiviti RBA dan team Najib hampir sama hebat.

马来西亚世界地位跌入谷底,沦为笑柄!- 吉祥 #zh

Kit Siang bersikap biadap, perlekeh titah Agong'
图片:中国报

引自 林吉祥

马来西亚的世界地位现在真的跌入谷底,在国际圈子里沦为笑柄。

这场新冠肺炎瘟疫对马来西亚人民而言竟然也是一件好事,因着疫情而封禁国际出游,为我们免去在外国抬不起头的窘境。

我们有一个为了对抗新冠肺炎瘟疫而不惜让国家处于目前已经经过五个月的紧急状态的首相;但和其他面对疫情却没有颁布紧急状态的国家相比,我们的新冠肺炎新增病例和新增死亡病例却不断飙升。

我们的新冠肺炎累计病例在2020年11月18日位居世界第85位。然而,七个月后到昨天,我们现在以64万6411宗累计病例位居世界第39位。我们今天可能还会在排名上超越奥地利,上升到第38位。

至于每百万人口单日新增病例来说,我们在昨天打败了世界头20个新冠肺炎累计病例最多的国家中的17个,惟三的例外是巴西、阿根廷和哥伦比亚。

马来西亚目前为止已经有3684人死于新冠肺炎:其中的3133宗是发生在自2021年1月11日紧急状态颁布后的五个月内;相对余下的551宗是发生在紧急状态前,即这场疫情爆发的头12个月内。

马来西亚昨天的新冠肺炎死亡病例有84宗;而英国昨天的新增死亡病例有17宗。该国的新冠肺炎单日新增死亡病例曾经在2021年1月20日达到最高纪录,录得1823宗。

目前政府内的最高领导层暗流汹涌,仿佛慕尤丁的首相职位随时不保似的,希山慕丁和阿兹敏的组合接掌政府的谣言四起,还有流言表示东姑拉沙里会成为代理首相,以及马来西亚回归到国家行动理事会管治的时代。这些流言蜚语对于2021年的马来西亚而言来得完全不是时候,也是极为不妥当的!

我们还有一个想要马来西亚蒙受更多恶名的内政部部长,他要马来西亚成为世界上第一个惟有在人口达到对新冠肺炎的群体免疫后才召开国会的国家,即便没有人知道这个群体免疫何时才能达成。

除此之外,这个内政部部长的方针似乎在与疫苗事务协调部长的背道而驰,前者还想要针对无证移民劳工展开搜捕,完全不去考量这样子究竟会对国家疫苗施打计划造成多大后果。

我们也有一个堪称为“游花园部长”的交通部部长。他针对5月24日吉隆坡两架轻快铁列车相撞意外报告所召开的记者会,让人听了摸不着头脑,无怪乎专栏作家玛丽亚姆会撰写一篇题为“魏家祥部长应该辞职的11个理由”的社论。

魏家祥带人游花园的记者会唯一让民众可以明白的内容就是,当他表示调查委员会的职责并非在“将罪责和责任归在任何一造”,而这很显然与调查的目的自相矛盾。

交通部前部长陆兆福表示,如果他还是部长的话,他肯定会在将调查报告呈上内阁后马上公布其内容。那么魏家祥究竟在隐瞒什么?

我们更有一个既高谈阔论“关上前门”也感叹“后门尤开”的国防部高级部长。

也不要忘了我们有一个主理国家灾害防治机构(Nadma)的特别事务部长被排除在新冠肺炎灾难国家安全理事会之外,他质疑政府的抗疫手法,尤其是国家疫苗施打计划。

最后,我们现有的内阁是马来西亚史上最臃肿的内阁。其中有很多部长仿佛都是无名氏,马来西亚人民如果在国内任何地方碰见他们都不会认得出他们。

那些当政者看不到解决新冠肺炎疫情的方案就是召开国会和州议会,这实在是很可悲它简直就是国家耻辱。这个方案能够恢复民众对抗疫手法的信任和信心,所有新冠肺炎标准作业程序的反反复复、细节不定及双重标准的现象都可以因此终结,并在抗疫战中推动全国动员的“全社会”策略和模式。

不然,马来西亚人民前面的日子还会非常凄惨,而国家会继续沦为国际圈子里的笑柄。

新媒体弄潮儿, 乱拳打死老师父

正当全球主流媒体大佬个个都因为亏损连连、想尽办法向谷歌与面子书追讨赔偿时,去年10月突然冒出一则新闻,名不经传的Morning Brew,获得美国商业与娱乐新闻网站“商业内幕”(Business Insider)的母公司Insider Inc注资7500万美元投资!

常说“乱拳打死老师父”,这句话用在Morning Brew两位创办人Alex Lieberman 及Austin Rief身上,再贴切不过。

5年养出300万订户

Morning Brew到底是干嘛的?说白了,Morning Brew就只是早上整理几则财经新闻简报(Newsletter),然后通过电邮发送给订阅者,但却在在短短5年吸引300万订户。

什么?连网站、APP都没有?是的,答案是—–都  没  有。

当然,以上说的是Morning Brew草创时期的模式,在经过数次融资,团队及规模扩大以后,Morning Brew已经朝向多元模式操作。

但是看回现今全球媒体业,个个都叫苦连天的,想招会员收订阅费不容易,数码广告收入又被谷歌与面子书抢得所剩无几,Morning Brew这个新媒体,为何却如此意气风发?

最气人的是,被视为新媒体弄潮儿的Alex 及Austin,还竟然不是念媒体出身的!可是这两位密西根大学(University of Michigan)金融科毕业生却把一个校园项目,变成活生生的千万企业!

玩出大赢家

话说2014年,Alex在最后一年的大学年,课业称不上太忙,除了打电动,好像还蛮多空余时间。正好发现许多金融系的学生,常常因为课业需要找财经新闻的时候,就只有《华尔街日报》或者CNBC这种大牌财经媒体,而后者的受众群都是华尔街的专业人士或企业高管、大咖。

对许多金融系学生来说,《华尔街日报》或CNBC的报导都难以消化且枯燥乏味。看到这个需求缺口后,Alex以玩票性质开始了取名“Market Corner”的每日财经新闻简报,以便携式文档格式(PDF)通过电邮发给大学内的同学们。

没想到 Market Corner的首个订阅者Austin,后来也成为了合伙人。

Austin提供了许多建设性的反馈,如何让Market Corner做得更好,两人深入认识后就合起伙来……尽管当时两人都还没把这当成一盘生意来看。

2015年毕业后,Alex找到自己一直梦寐以求的工作,挤进摩根斯坦利(Morgan Stanley)工作;Austin则在一间投资银行当实习生。

两人“半工半创业”,Market Corner 的订户群也逐在校园圈扩大,从原本的密西根大学45个学生订阅,慢慢扩大至其他10所大学。逐渐地,Market Corner的订阅者也不再只是学生,甚至有教授或都俱乐部会长之类的。

靠人脉筹得7.5万

由于没有资金,两人绞尽脑汁如何在不花钱打广告下,把Market Corner推广给更多人。所以他们会密切观察忠实读者最关心什么课题、从订阅者的电邮地址揣测对方资料。

由于提供实用又好消化的内容,并且还免费及有推荐人奖励,读者人数节节上升。

随着订阅人数扩张,笃定了Morning Brew的未来发展潜能,同时也证明两位年轻小伙子不是“玩玩下的”,Alex 及Austin开始寻求资金,从最邻近的“密西根人脉”筹得了7万5000美元。

2016年9月,Alex决定辞职,并把业余玩票性质的简报,认真地当成一盘生意来经营,Market Corner也易名为Morning Brew。Austin则在2017年5月加入成为全职。

■Alex Lieberman(左) 与Austin Rief。

电邮打开商机之门

电子邮件是最普遍使用的联系工具之一,但也是公认开信率(open rate)最低的管道之一,那凭什么Morning Brew的财经简报电邮开信率维持在高水平,并且就此打开商机之门。

Alex的经验分享认为,只要是好的内容、吸引人的标题,就会大大提高电邮的开信率。

而在资讯泛滥的今天,读者更需要内容策展人(content curator)帮忙从海量的资讯中,筛选他们感兴趣及值得阅读的内容。Alex说, 如何加强与读者的互动、如何策展更有趣易读的内容,就是Morning Brew的强处所在。

内容策展的重点是如何利用现有的内容为目标客户创造价值,基本包含三大原素 ,发掘与筛选、整合与编辑,以及传播与分享。

随着互联网出现催化全球媒体出现分解趋势 (Media Disaggregation),像Morning Brew的新媒体以筛选、整合与分享新闻资讯给读者,再透过监督与平衡(Check and Balance)来建立公信力,确可赢取读者的信任度。

对于加强与读者的互动,Morning Brew都会回应读者的留言,每日回复的数量大概是400、500则,目的就是要建立与读者的“亲密关系”,一旦关系建立,读者的回头率会提高,也会逐渐成为忠实读者。

一个忠实读者,往往抵上许多个“随兴型读者”,因为忠实读者的人数尽管占比率低,但他们所阅读的数量却比随兴型读者多出5倍。

流量归流量 变现成功吗?

随着订阅群扩大,代表着影响力的同步扩增,但难道还是一直亏本经营吗?眼看许多经验老道的媒体“老师父”都碰个焦头烂额,这两个小伙子就有本事把流量变现(Monetization)吗?

从2015年3月营运以后,Morning Brew在2年半以后(2017年中)就开始有广告收入。

尤其在2020年,Morning Brew获得许多金主以赞助形式打广告,获得不俗收入。

据网上资料,截至2020年,Morning Brew团队已扩大至60名员工,订阅人数300万人,收入预计达到2000万美元。

乱拳果然打死老师父

非本科出身,却赢在整理了更容易消化、更接地气、更符合读者需求的新闻内容,从校园简报变成简报生意,再成为一个媒体品牌。

Morning Brew从简报,变成更长的新闻报导,新闻类型也从财经变成更多元化。同时,还把呈现方式从纯文字晋升为音频、视频。

简报电邮仍然是Morning Brew触达订阅者的首个管道,再把读者引流至网站及APP。

询及对未来5年,人们的新闻阅读习性会有什么变化时,Alex 及Austin认为,未来读者的新闻阅读习性会更多元化、更分解化。这也表示,如果成功制造差異化,每个媒体都有它的小众市场,也意味更多不同形式的媒体有存在的空间。

Alex 及Austin并没有发明飞机大炮原子弹,只是把原有的事物创新,调整包装来符合特定群体的新需求,而这个解决方案,洽好解决了这群体的问题,使他们的平台蹿红。这当中的启示就是,创业不必太复杂,专注于研究如何解决一个问题,或许就会从此翻转你的人生。

Morning Brew教会我们的事:推荐奖励养成更多忠诚读者

偏向选择自行成长的Morning Brew,为了激励读者和他们的朋友分享,两位创办人推出一个推荐奖励制。当读者将Morning Brew 的在线链接,发送给朋友或同事时,将获得Morning Brew独家赠品作为奖励。

推荐给:

3人:可获得独家周日简报版

Kit Siang: Takiyuddin is talking rubbish #en

Quit for delaying Undi18, Kit Siang tells EC chairman | Free Malaysia Today  (FMT)
Pic: Free Malaysia Today

By Lim Kit Siang

The de facto Law Minister, Takiyuddin Hassan is talking bunkum.

Where is the Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin? Does he understand what he announced in his national telecast on January 12, 2021?

Is Muhyiddin the Prime Minister or can every Minister can pretend that he or she is the Prime Minister?

Takiyuddin Hassan has denied that the cabinet was “shifting goalposts” as to when the emergency period should come to an end. He said the cabinet was only “correcting” rules to help the “referee” make the right decision.

What does Takiyuddin mean what he said he was merely “correcting” the rules when he corrected the Health director-general Noor Hisham Abdullah for saying that only the king had the discretion to extend the emergency by pointing out that it was the Cabinet’s responsibility to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong whether or not the emergency should be extended.

The constitutional rules on the “Yang di Pertuan Agong acting on advice” are crystal clear. They are set out in Article 40, as follows:

“Article 40. (1) In the exercise of his functions under this Constitution or federal law the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall act in accordance with the advice of the Cabinet or of a Minister acting under the general authority of the Cabinet, except as otherwise provided by this Constitution; but shall be entitled, at his request, to any information concerning the government of the Federation which is available to the Cabinet.

“(1A) In the exercise of his functions under this Constitution or federal law, where the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is to act in accordance with advice, on advice, or after considering advice, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall accept and act in accordance with such advice.

“(2) The Yang di-Pertuan Agong may act in his discretion in the performance of the following functions, that is to say:

(a) the appointment of a Prime Minister;

(b) the withholding of consent to a request for the dissolution of Parliament;

(c) the requisition of a meeting of the Conference of Rulers concerned solely with the privileges, position, honours and dignities of Their Royal Highnesses, and any action at such a meeting, and in any other case mentioned in this Constitution.”

However, in his national telecast on January 12 announcing the emergency proclaimed by the Yang di Pertuan Agong the previous day, Muhyiddin sought to allay reservations about the emergency as a proper remedy to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic and possible abuses of power.

This was where in his national telecast on January 12, Muhyiddin announced a Special Independent Committee and gave an implicit undertaking that it is the Special Independent Committee and not the Cabinet or the designated Minister who will advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether the emergency declared on January 11 will be extended on August 1, 2021.

Strict constitutionalists would argue that the powers of the Cabinet or the designated Minister cannot be delegated, but if the Prime Minister has given an implicit public undertaking that it is the Special Independent Committee and not the Cabinet or designated Minister who will advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong “whether a major emergency still exist to continue with the period of Emergency Proclamation or terminate the Proclamation earlier than the date designated”, is Muhyiddin to dishonour such a solemn implicit public undertaking?

Had the Prime Minister been wrongly advised by the de facto Law Minister to give such an implicit public undertaking?

If it is the Cabinet or the designated Minister who is going to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether to extend the emergency on August 1, why then set up a Special Independent Committee headed by the former Chief Justice and comprising former public officials and Members of Parliament?

Where is the Prime Minister?

This is the time for Muhyiddin to speak up.

Biar Kerajaan Tewas, Jangan Biar Rakyat Tumpas – Kerajaan takut hilang kuasa, Rakyat jadi sengsara.

Pengumuman Total Lockdown Mesti Bersekali Dengan Bantuan Kepada RakyatKita hampir sahaja tidak dapat bertahan dengan perlaksanaan total lockdown selama 2 minggu namun Kerajaan mengumumkan lanjutan yang bertujuan untuk menurunkan kes positif Covid-19 yang masih tidak menunjukkan tanda-tanda penurunan. Pengumuman total lockdown tanpa bersekali dengan bantuan kewangan adalah tindakan yang tidak bertanggungjawab daripada Kerajaan. Kita mahu Kerajaan tidak bersikap seperti warden penjara, meletakkan rakyat dalam penjara di rumah mereka, seakan menjatuhkan hukuman sedangkan kes Covid-19 yang meningkat disumbang oleh ketidakcekapan Kerajaan dan SOP yang mengelirukan, bercanggah dan tidak masuk akal. Berapa banyak kampit beras yang dapat kita terus berikan? Berapa banyak lagi bakul makanan untuk diedarkan dan berapa minggu lagi yang mampu kita lakukan? Ketika Ismail Sabri mengumumkan lanjutan total lockdown, rakyat Malaysia amat berharap mereka akan melihat Menteri Kewangan, Tengku Zafrul berdiri di samping beliau bagi mengumumkan bantuan kewangan segera yang boleh membantu rakyat Malaysia. Tetapi, ini tidak berlaku.

Bantu Perniagaan Kekalkan Pekerjaan

Beberapa hari yang lalu saya pergi ke sebuah pusat membeli-belah untuk membeli makanan dan memasuki sebuah kedai buah-buahan untuk membeli buah anggur. Ini adalah kali pertama saya melihat buah-buahan dijual dengan harga yang sangat murah kerana ia tidak lagi segar dan saya satu-satunya pelanggan yang berada di situ. Situasi tersebut sangat menyedihkan. Saya hanya terfikirkan mengenai stok mereka, sewa yang harus dibayar dan gaji pekerja mereka. Hari ini kita tidak lagi bercakap mengenai keuntungan atau pulangan modal. Kini kita hanya bercakap soal kelangsungan hidup. Tumpuan kita sekarang adalah bagaimana untuk mengelak lebih ramai orang hilang pekerjaan dan perniagaan tidak terjejas sehingga terpaksa menutup kedai. Kerajaan banyak memfokuskan kepada golongan B40 sahaja. Hampir tidak ada apa-apa untuk golongan M40 yang berada dalam industri Perusahaan Kecil dan Sederhana (PKS). Dan ketika kumpulan M40 ini kelemasan, golongan T20 juga tidak mampu untuk bernafas. Kerajaan hari ini cuma menjadi penonton, tidak proaktif dan hanya mahu tunggu dan lihat. PKS kini berada di peringkat terakhir mereka untuk meminta pertolongan.

Rakyat Tidak Perlukan Singkatan Nama Untuk Mengaburi Kelemahan

Sejak PKP 1.0 hingga PKP 3.0, Kerajaan Perikatan Nasional (PN) hanya mengumumkan singkatan nama (perkataan atau frasa yang dipendekkan). Mereka mahu ia dilihat menarik tetapi sebenarnya kosong dan tidak mempunyai apa-apa makna di dalamnya. Kerajaan PN hari ini hanya belajar daripada pentadbiran Najib – menambah angka 1 dalam semua programnya. 1Malaysia, Pr1ma, BR1M dan PPA1M. Kerajaan hari ini cuma meniru tabiat yang sama dan melakukannya secara berlebihan. Kita perlu membuat carian di Google setiap kali membaca laporan berita mengenai pengumuman baharu – selain PKP, PKPD, PKPB, PKPP, terdapat juga BPR, PdPR, PICK, PPV, JKJAV, CITF, PIKAS dan SJR (malah ayat sekatan jalan raya juga telah dipendekkan). Kerajaan Perikatan Nasional ini tidak memberikan kita apa-apa selain singkatan nama yang telah dipendekkan untuk menutup kegagalan mereka dan kelemahan koordinasi dalam Kabinet serta antara Kementerian.

Majlis Raja-Raja akan bermesyuarat minggu hadapan. Saya benar-benar berharap agar penderitaan rakyat akan berakhir dengan memendekkan tempoh pentadbiran Kerajaan Perikatan Nasional ini. PN – Be End adalah singkatan nama yang amat kita perlukan sekarang.

Throw someone under a bus?

There is a lot of hunger and anger out there. The people’s misery is accentuated by their perception of corruption and double standards top to bottom as they reel from disease, death and deprivation.

The need for better government in Malaysia has never been greater, before the people are driven to want to throw someone under a bus.

It is a matter of grave urgency to discover a fit for purpose arrangement in the face of the greatest health crisis of our times, which is eating into the economic, social and political fabric of our country.

We cannot have a government worrying, politically unlike the people, where its next meal is coming from. A government walking on thin ice, always looking over its shoulder to see who is about to stab it in the back, and thinking of its next move to stay in power.

We need a government fully focused on addressing the huge crisis the country is facing.

We need a government which has the full support of Parliament, which should be recalled to play its rightful role outlined in the nation’s constitution, the highest law of the land.

Parliament has not met this year for its fourth session following the declaration of emergency in January — despite clear invocation that it can meet, including by the king, who had agreed to that declaration.

There are calls to suspend Malaysia’s system of parliamentary democracy and to establish a National Operations Council (NOC, or Majlis Gerakan Negara, MAGERAN), like the one which operated for two years from 1969 following the race riots in May that year.

Exposing megalomania, one such call comes from a political leader who had previously asked for the present emergency, such as it is, to be ended. What, to be followed by full declaration of emergency with him at the head of the NOC?

We must abandon such desires as the wet dreams of wannabe dictators.

There are three fundamental differences between the situation in 1969 and the one we face now. First, there has been no breakdown of law and order as occurred following the racial riots for us today to hand power to an autocrat, always a dangerous gamble.

Second, and critically, we have no towering political leaders to take the lead without significant opposition to think through the national issues to take the country forward.

Third, crucially, we don’t have two years.

Indeed, the NEP (New Economic Policy) — one of the two main products of that period — has become a primary source of national division instead of the unity it was supposed to have forged. The main reason is that it has been twisted and emasculated to corrupt the Malaysian body politic. But, that is a discussion for another day.

The other outcome, the shepherding of hitherto antagonistic political parties into a grand alliance — Barisan Nasional — is something we should be seeking to achieve today. But double quick.

Who is to lead that charge? A few hands will go up but, truth be known, there is NOBODY of the same kind of stature of the post 1969 leaders who can command and pull disparate parties together. Malaysian political leadership is bankrupt, the outcome of 40 years of divisiveness and greed for power rather than statesmanship.

Should we then just lie down and die? Of course, we cannot just give up. The leaders of the main political factions in Parliament should sit down very quickly to work out how they can form a unity government with the backing of their MPs in Parliament. They must, for once, serve the national interest and ride above narrow political and personal interests.

It is not about now is my chance to be PM. It is about how best to serve the nation at its hour of peril. About how to get on top of Covid-19 and to continually manage the risk from the virus that is not going away, how to restore the economy and to plan recovery of economic and social life. It is about the finest hour. Leave political games out for now.

Can we do it? I am not a close adviser of the prime minister but, from the start, when he came to power, I had always put to him the need to broaden his political base and have a bigger tent to ensure stability of government as the country faced huge challenges. He thought better and imagined he could politically navigate his way to stay in power despite not having the numbers in Parliament to achieve such stability.

It is not too late for him to go for a national unity government. As prime minister, he is best placed to do so. He has to rise above narrow interests and show the statesmanship the country needs now. If he does not, forget about being harshly judged by history, support for him will erode further at this moment in time.

The Malay rulers meet on Wednesday. This is a most important meeting in light of the crisis the country is facing. I read a lot of comments on social media about not drawing the rulers into politics. This is a wrong reading of history and reality. The Malay rulers have a role, although the difficulty has always been how exactly they should play it without exceeding constitutional provision and without undermining support for the institution.

The fact of the matter in our present situation is the Malay rulers have been seized of the issue of proclamation of emergency, which speaks to a discernment on how the country should be run at a time of crisis in the interest of the people.

When they meet on Wednesday, they will obviously want to review how the country has been run based on what they see and hear and representations they have received.

They have, as expressed by Walter Bagehot in The English Constitution, the right “to be consulted, to encourage and to warn”.

In our present circumstances, the people need some intervention to save their lives and livelihoods. A nod in the direction of a national unity government and convening of Parliament would be something the rakyat would deeply appreciate.

The Malay rulers could also propose ways in which the people can assist with expertise in these troubled times through establishment of an advisory council comprising representatives of civil society, professional bodies and business.

This could be expanded into a Malaysia First Council subsequently with wider terms of reference to get into the whole array of issues that have placed the country, not only in this crisis, but also in the most precarious position since its independence.

We need to have a whole-of-nation approach and best leadership to save the country. Every institution has a role to play. The people must will and support a national unity government, the convening of Parliament, and participation to find solutions and build consensus.

The palpable anger heard and to be read almost everywhere should get creative response. The rasa marah rakyat (the people’s wrath) should not be allowed to reach the level where they would want to throw somebody under a bus.
